    It seems that this could be a sticky but I'll leave that up to the mods.

    Let's get tab on injuries here. My one request is to keep discussions relatively on track and move side discussions to separate threads if possible.

    There were three injuries that I was aware of in last night's game. Hopefully we will get updates soon:

    Davante Adams: Injured his left ankle on the Packers third FG drive but finished the game. It sounded like they just re-taped his bad ankle and got him back out there. Interested to see if it swells today.

    Corey Linsley: Injured his right ankle when he got rolled upon in the first series. My guess is high ankle type of sprain. He did not return to the game.

    Micah Hyde: Apparently he worsened the hip injury that he was dealing with last week. Carted off of the field and did not return.

    Can't afford to lose these guys. I understand injuries happen, but they seem to happen more this year than before and it's hard to get clicking with recievers on offense if they have to keep switching them out. Same to be said with the secondary and lineman. Have to work the most with the guys that are going to suit up on Sunday.

    I want to see another game with Tretter at C. I had noticed in the previous weeks the line calls were getting messed up and there were unblocked rushers getting to Rodgers.

    I'm anxious to see Montgomery get back on the field. I like what I saw earlier this season and think he could really help the offense get back on track. I know he was close to getting back last week, but apparently suffered a setback.

    This is an incredible number of injuries. Again. Last year must have been the anomaly. This year things have have gotten back to normal.

    Linsley, Montgomery, Abbrederis still out.

    Bulaga, Hyde, and Pennel all practiced.

    McCarthy announced during his press conference today that Ty Montgomery won´t be able to play tomorrow vs. the Bears.

    There´s no reason to do that because there´s no better player available the Packers could put on their 53.

    He's not playing, so literally anyone would be better.

    But Montgomery could be a factor later in the season and the playoffs, something Ed Williams or any other street free agent probably won´t be able to provide.

    Putting Montgomery on IR at this point removes him from the Roster for the year and puts someone like Ed Williams on it. Williams most likely would be a healthy inactive each game, so it really makes no sense to give up on Monty for the season. Now if staff feels like either Abby and/or Monty are not coming back anytime soon, then bringing in a street FA might be the next move.

    Odds are at this point he won't be Cap. Just frustration on my part but what is it with this team and injuries. Is there a problem with their med staff? How they train? Are the players soft? I don't know of another team that goes through this all the time. Day to day in Green Bay is code for month to month.

    The Ravens have lost Flacco, Forsett, Smith and Suggs to season ending injuries. While the Packers seem to be banged up pretty well aside of Nelson they haven´t lost any impact players for the entire year though.

    Not the point. I was being facetious with the IR remark, but come on with this stuff.
    And it's getting to the point where maybe the guy shouldn't be counted on for much, if anything, and that's if he makes it back at all.

    It's frustrating as a fan to watch YOUR team get hit with injuries, but I'm guessing that there are very few teams (and their fans) that aren't dealing with injuries all season. It just gets magnified for your own team, but its an obvious part of the game.

    Montgomery is dealing with a high ankle sprain and he came back too early. One month and one day after the sprain he was a full participant in practice but had to drop out. Here's a quote from a 11/19 story:
    http://www.jsonline.com/sports/pack...iver-ty-montgomery-b99619511z1-352033981.html

    The injuries are frustrating. Last year was a great year for staying healthy and I assume they're doing the same things, so it seems like just bad luck. But over the past several years I think the Packers have been more "unlucky" than the average team so...

    Captain WIMM pointed out recently that the Packers have ranked 30th or lower in injuries 3 times in the last 5 years. At some point it's not bad luck, it's a problem somewhere.

    The Packers made some extensive changes to their approach preventing injuries last season and finished in 3rd though. According to the only site that has information available for this season the team has only lost the 24th most team games missed to injuries. I´m not sure how reliable that source is though.

    Take an injury like a concussion. There really is not a lot a player/team can do to "train to prevent" this injury. Bad luck is going to dictate where your team ranks against other teams. Ankle sprains, ACL's, etc. almost the same thing...bad luck.

    Now where the medical staff could be faulted is how they treat these injuries and/or if the player is rushed back too quickly. Besides off season conditioning programs and stretching before the game, there isn't going to be a lot a team can do to prevent most of these injuries, they occur due to the nature of the game and can occur more or less frequently depending on luck (good or bad).

    Without doing any research and just putting this out there. Any of you think that the field has anything to do with all these ankle injuries this year?

    They even mentioned it against the Lions how the field looked great, but the grass was very compact. Also that was a reason given to why the ball might have left weird on the potential game winner. But would that be causing some players to really stick their cleats on the grass and causing all these injuries? The field might look great, but be the one causing injuries?

    Bryan Bulaga suffered a sprained ankle in yesterday's game. The injury is considered minor but painful.

    Which injuries? Unless you have inside information to particular injuries, there is no justification in questioning the treatment. "ankle" on the injury report could be a minor ankle sprain to a fracture. The treatment is based on the injury, as is the recovery. I suspect the medical staff is as good as any in the NFL.
